Driving under the influence is a serious offense for motorists in Oregon. A DUI conviction has many penalties including expensive fines, a jail sentence, and driver's license suspension. A person convicted of DUI can be facing extensive consequences if convicted. The severity of the DUI penalties imposed upon you in a conviction will vary based upon factors such as the amount of alcohol or drugs that are alleged to have been in your system at the time of the offense, whether it was your first offense, or if you have an record of multiple DUI offenses.
Even in a first offense the penalties are very severe. A DUI conviction will also remain on one's driving record and will impact potential future employment opportunities due to background checks, and will also increase one's insurance rates substantially.
